Imagine paradise and thoughts instantly turn to the Seychelles. This archipelago of 115 stunningly beautiful islands, just below the equator, sparkle in the middle of the Indian Ocean and are one of the world's greatest natural treasures. Deserted, pristine, dazzling-white beaches framed by granite boulders, shimmering turquoise lagoons, swaying emerald coconut palms, warm tropical breezes, lush forests and stunningly colourful underwater life await guests. Each of the islands are unique and exhibit an individual charm, personality and atmosphere of their own. Island-hopping is the best way to explore and many choose to take a day excursion to one of the inner granite islands or stay at one of the exotic island hideaway resorts. This is a place where natural purity and authenticity are perfectly cocooned from the hustle and bustle of modern life. A place where tranquillity and simplicity can be found and innocence rediscovered. A place like no other, and another world entirely.
